Hello all! I'm a regular on my local Nest board and have a question that I'm hoping to get help with. I am hosting a baby shower for my brother and his GF this weekend. The GF also has a 4 year old son from a previous relationship. (I know showers for 2nd babies are frowned upon sometimes, but I really wanted to do this to welcome them all into the family.) This will be my first time meeting the GF and her son, but we have talked on the phone/email/FB (they all live in another state.)
I want the older son to feel included and special at the shower. I bought him a "Big Brother" shirt, am buying him a book about being a big brother, and I want to buy him a toy to unwrap when the MTB is unwrapping her gifts. I'm looking for recommendations for a toy suitable for a 4 year old, that will keep his interest, not make a mess, and is not loud. I want him to be able to play with it while we do "boring shower stuff". And, I want to order it with Amazon Prime's 2 day shipping. So, does something like this exist, or am I just discribing every mother-of-a-preschooler's dream lol?
Any suggestions are appreciated. I would prefer to keep it under $50, but if it's too good to pass up, I will consider it. Thank you all so much for taking the time to read and help me out.
